‘Living Chic with Plastic’ podcast series welcomes young people involved in marine plastic litter research, prevention programs, clean-up activities, and other advocacies. We listen to their first-hand experience, different challenges they may be facing, and draw important insights toward possible solutions for this issue.

This episode features teenage ecology activist Ralyn ‘Lilly’ Satidtanasarn, 16, also known as Greta Thundberg of Thailand. Since she was 8 years old, Lilly has been talking to government officials, corporate executives, and civic leaders, about the pollution caused by single-use plastic. She paddles Bangkok canals, picking up rubbish, and she convinced a supermarket to stop offering plastic bags for one day every week.

Here she talks about her activism, aspirations, and the challenges in the campaign against single-use plastics. Amid the ongoing plastic crisis, Lilly urges everyone to stop talking about change but instead, push forward and take that step to change.

The podcast can be found on Spotify and Apple Podcast.
